Plantlife is committed to delivering inclusive approaches and equality in our work so that a greater diversity of people play a role in the conservation of wild plants and fungi.

We are committed against the discrimination of anyone in our network, our partners, our supporters and members of the public. We encourage and value diversity and we recognise that talent and potential are distributed across the population.

Plantlife will create a culture that is open about the inequalities and exclusion that many face and we will address this to provide equity for all in engaging with Plantlife’s mission.

Reflecting on and creating opportunities to hear different perspectives and experiences of individuals, groups and communities will ensure inclusive delivery and equality of opportunity. The evolution, implementation and evaluation of this policy informs our relationships with all associated with Plantlife.
